Student Design Showcase

Flipgrid Event
May 12 - 18, 2020

The purpose of this showcase was to promote and publicize excellence in medical device design by teams of undergraduate and graduate students conducted as part of their course work.

The re-envisioned Student Design Showcase is now a web-based event where design teams can show off the medical technology projects they have been working on and be judged by professionals in the medical device industry or academia. The public is welcome to join the Student Design Showcase May 12 - 18, 2020.

The Online Showcase will be implemented as a Flipgrid Event. You are able to watch short videos that highlight their project and viewers can leave short video responses and questions.
